Quandary Resolution 8376
cummingtonite, meet cute, vinaceous, mug, v.1
Joe and Teresa met at an amusement park, where each was going to skip the do-your-own-gem-hunting cave, but they ended up there anyway because it was mugging a little outside, so while they waited for it to stop raining they each tapped at the shining crystalline wall of the cave until a bit of mineral came loose: sadly, Joe's was a hunk of yellowish granular cummingtonite that came apart in his hand, but that was when Teresa offered him half of her glowingly vinaceous garnet, and that was the meet cute that brought Grandma and Grandpa together.
